Important Information about CarStereo.com and purchasing products.
Am I purchasing my stereo equipment from CarStereo.com?
No. It's important to know before you make your purchase that you are not buying your equipment from CarStereo.com. CarStereo.com is a directory of car audio retailers, manufacturers, installers and other businesses related to the car audio and electronics industry. We do not sell car stereo equipment. When you purchase something that you found in a directory or advertisement at this site, you are purchasing it from that retailer whose site you clicked into. We recommend that you know whom you are purchasing it from and that you retain printed copies of all sales receipts from your transaction.
Does CarStereo.com approve and recommend the dealers that are advertising on this site?
We do not do any background checks on our advertisers or make any recommendations of one retailer over another. It is the responsibility of the purchasers to make this determination for themselves. The Product Directory and the ranking system in Top Car Stereo Websites is paid advertising, and is not to be mistaken for a rating based on quality, price or customer satisfaction records.
What about warranties?
You'll want to check with the retailer or the manufacturer regarding warranties on products purchased from retailers found at CarStereo.com. CarStereo.com does not sell any car stereo equipment and therefore is not responsible for any warranties on that equipment.
I need to contact the dealer I purchased my stereo from. Can you tell me who it was?
No. Once you click any link at CarStereo.com to purchase any product that is displayed, you are now at the retailer's website. All sales are handled individually through that retailer. CarStereo.com receives no sales information
